What or Who Inspires You?

“All my life I have looked up to the person who showed me the meaning of passion, dedication and selflessness. Growing up, I watched the passion my father had when he worked hard to make my family happy. He displayed dedication in his work ethic and his perseverance to get the job done when other relied on him greatly. In all the actions my father took throughout his life, he never ceased to put others before himself. As I remember my father and live on his legacy, I aspire to share my life with others as he did. I live my life with passion by helping my mother and being a positive role model to my little brother and sister. I am also inspired to be dedicated to opening my heart to others so I can leave a positive impact on all the individuals I cross paths with.”
